Andrew Ghezzi will be responsible for re-building the sales and marketing teams and departments within Port City Web, as well as handling new sales opportunities.

His background in ecommerce, along with his experience in sales and account management, coupled with his years in New York City and Boston, helps Andrew stand out from his competition. His level of professionalism and understanding of ecommerce will help our customers immensely, and will help Port City Web bring on new levels of customers,” noted Crago. We have seen explosive growth in web services in 2007 and expect it to continue into 2008.”
Additionally, Port City Web is close to signing a new lease for just over 2,000 square feet of Class-A office space in the Pease area of Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
